The Cavalry Is Us: Protecting the public good and our profession - Joshua Corman Derbycon 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Cavalry Is Us: Protecting the public good and our profession - Joshua Corman
Derbycon 2013

Description: The Cavalry Isn’t Coming. Our fate falls to us or to no one. At BSidesLV and DEF CON 21, a call was made and many of you have answered. Here at DerbyCon, we begin the work of shaping our futures. We face a clear and present danger in the criminalization of research, to our liberties, and (with our increased dependence on indefensible IT) even to human safety and human life. What was once our hobby became our profession and (when we weren’t looking) now permeates every aspect of our personal lives, our families, our safety… Now that security issues are mainstream, security illiteracy has lead to very dangerous precedents as many of us are watching our own demise. We’re here to help us all hit rock bottom in the pursuit of something better. At some point the pain of maintaining inertia will exceed the pain of making changes, so it is time for some uncomfortable experimentation. This session will both frame the plans to engage in Legislative, Judicial, Professional, and Media (hearts & minds) channels and to organize and initiate our “constitutional congress” working sessions for Saturday & Sunday downstairs in Bellmonte. The time is now. It will not be easy, but it is necessary, and we are up for the challenge. It’s high time we make our dent in the universe.

Bio: “Joshua Corman is the Director of Security Intelligence for Akamai. Most recently he served as Research Director for Enterprise Security at The 451 Group.

His analysis cuts across sectors to the core security challenges plaguing the IT industry, and helps to drive evolutionary strategies toward emerging technologies and shifting incentives. A staunch advocate for CISOs, Corman also serves as a Fellow with the Ponemon Institute, on the Faculty for IANS, co-founder of Rugged Software and was a Top Influencer of IT in NetworkWorld. Corman received his bachelor’s degree in philosophy, graduating summa cum laude, from the University of New Hampshire. ”
